Answer: 
With the right wheel, yes. If you're using it on concrete, grout or similar materials I'd recommend purchasing a dust shroud. If you're just removing old grout from between tile you may want to consider a smaller unit.

Answer: 
Although this grinder can be used to cut grout, it includes an abrasive wheel and grinding guard specifically designed for metal grinding. However, Makita has a full line of diamond wheels, specifically for concrete cutting, that can also be used to cut most grouts. When using any cutting wheel on a grinder, it is recommended that you also use the correct size cutting guard.

Answer: 
The power is given by: Current * Voltage * power factor * motor efficiency
15A * 120 V * ~0.80 * ~0.80 = ~1152 Watts = ~1.545 HP
That's the equation for shaft HP. The motor's nameplate HP is probably around 2 HP.

15 Amp 7 in. Corded Angle Grinder is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough Grinder I removed glued down hardwood floors with pry bars and hammers after the flood here. This left lots of glue and splinters on the concrete slab. This grinder with the RIDGID7 in. Blue 12-Segment Turbo Cup Grinding Wheel removed All the wood splinters and flattened the glue. It would have taken it completely off but this was sufficient for the 900square ft of flooring area. The grinder didn't slow down or over heat. And the wheel is still ready for more. This took about 8 hrs to complete trading off with another helper. I would have probably rented a large walk behind from the local Rent All but there was a week waiting list. This grinder did the job and I am very pleased with the purchase.
